5 stars. I have made over a dozen 5 star recipes, but this one was PERFECT. I used what I had in the kitchen, vegan butter and flax eggs. It was still delicious! I also ran out of sugar and rolled the cookie balls into powered sugar. Can someone say cracked out! Our pleasure sensors went nuts after a bite.

I seriously think these cookies are just about the best I've ever tasted! I made them for my pregnant daughter-in-law (because of the ginger) but loved them so much I intend to make another batch today! By the way, I followed the recipe exactly; didn't change or add anything. Perfect!!

Excellent! Followed instructions exactly and made 32, finished size 2 1/2 ", not all that big but perfect size. I have one of those old Cushionaire cookie sheets (think that is what they are called) that always makes perfect cookies every time - never burnt.

Very good. Made 30 cookies but they are NOT large. I would call them average to small.

This is perfect!!! The only thing I changed it double the ginger and used all spice insted of cloves. Ourfriends kept saying This is a perfect taste to make a gingerbread house with. AOH and we rolled them in colored sugar insted of white sugar and he kids went crazy for them!!!

FANTASTIC! Quick & easy to make. Delicious cookies! Followed recipe exactly, except that I used Big Brown Demerara Sugar Crystals for the "additional sugar" to roll them in. It has a nice, "strong" flavor! And, it looks pretty. Dough was just right. Cookies are Soft. Chewy. Delicious.

Followed the recipe. Resulting dough was too slimy and runny. Added 1/2 cup more flour to thicken the dough. Helped to shape them and get them on the baking sheet. Cooked for 10 minutes on 350 as directed. When I took them out of the oven 70% of them had burned on the bottom. They also look nothing like the picture. At least the part of the cookies that were not burned taste good, I guess.
